Take it from the Tap
Roseville's Take it from the Tap initiative, through public education and outreach seeks to inform and educate about the monetary and health benefits of drinking Roseville's high quality drinking water delivered to your tap. Modeled after a successful program in the City of Santa Rosa and adopted in many cities across California, Take it from the Tap initiative will formally launch in Roseville in late October 2012.
Why does drinking tap water make sense?
It's healthy, refreshing and a good value for you and your family...
Comparing a gallon of Roseville tap water to other liquid commodities says it all - its a great value! Good for your family's budget and great for the community.
It's a healthy alternative to sugar and chemical-laden drinks...
The City of Roseville is partnering with the First 5 Placer Children and Families Commission, through the Rethink Your Drink campaign, to tout the health benefits of tap water in lieu of sugary and chemical-laden drinks. First 5 Placer focuses on good nutrition for children aged 0 to 5 and is working to fight the obesity epidemic affecting children across the nation, even in Placer County. Since 90 percent of brain development occurs in the first 5 years of life, nutrition is a critical factor in a child's development. Drinking tap water is one aspect of good health in both children and adults.
In partnership with Placer First 5, we will be providing information on why drinking Roseville tap water is a great healthy alternative through the Potter the Otter series of educational material. More on Potter the Otter can be found at PotterLovesWater.com.
